An SI and a Sergeant attached to the checkpoint at Midigama in Weligama in Matara were hospitalized with severe injuries sustained in an attack with sharp weapons by a gang.

Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera told our news team that this assault had taken place last afternoon.

On information received to the effect that a group was poised to attack another group at Midigama, the SI and the sergeant serving at the police checkpoint had set out to inquire about the matter.

Initial investigation has revealed that on this occasion a group had waylaid and assaulted the SI and the Sergeant.

While the assaulted SI has been admitted to the Matara hospital, the Sergeant who had sustained severe injuries was first admitted to the Karapitiya hospital and later transferred to the Colombo National Hospital.

Meanwhile Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said that while two of the attackers had by now been arrested, more suspects are scheduled to be arrested.
